Where Am I? An Update

Hello my crafty friends, wanted to pop on here and update everyone. I know I am always "missing in action" a lot. I wish I had a good answer for that but think I have finally figured it out. I am changing, leaving the grieving seasons (years) and moving on with life. That's not to say I won't ever be back to blogging regularly or visiting all my lovely crafty friend's blogs and leaving comments. But right now I am not regular about that at all and I don't know when I will be. So I hope you all will bear with me while I figure out this life of mine. I am keeping busy. I go to the library on Wednesday's for senior day for people 55 and older. We exercise, play games/movies/puzzles, play Jeopardy or Family Feud, have speakers that come in and have a nice lovely free lunch. It is 4 hours of fun and meeting new people. Most are older than me, but I am still enjoying it very much. I've been going to the movies at least once a week with friends. Been getting crafty as well. I was asked to make stencils for 5 very large signs, my nephew has asked me to do coach gifts for him for this year since it is his senior year, and of course doing other crafty things. 

I am also going away for just about the whole month of Oct. I'm a little nervous about being gone for so long though. lol Bret will be holding down the fort and taking care of the dogs. Where am I going you ask? Well let me tell you, on Oct 3rd, my sister friend, her husband and I leave their house in VA for Gatlinburg, TN. We will spend about 4 days there, then will move on to Memphis-spend another 4 days or so there and then onto Nashville. Again, 4 days or so there and then moving on to Waco TX. Then back home. It should be a fun trip with so much to see and do. I'm looking forward to it, but nervous about getting home sick and missing the pups. But all will be well I'm sure. So that is what is going on around here in my life. Keeping busy, moving on with living and getting crafty here and there. 

So here is the signs that I made the stencils (I'm not doing the stenciling, just made the stenciling to the sizes they needed) for as well as the shadow boxes I made for my nephew's golf coach. My nephew will be adding golf tees in the bottom of the shadow box to finish off these gifts. Now I'm designing wrestling gifts, then pole vaulting. I'm sorry I haven't been around visiting in such a long time. It will be a bit longer before I come by I'm afraid. But I will be by sometime!! 

As always, thank you for your patience with me. You all mean the world to me and I don't want you to think I've forgotten about you all. I haven't, just trying to figure this life of mine out and trying to just find joy in everyday. With having so many falls, I think I've realized that one day I might not get back up, so I need to live life. I thank you also for always sticking by me. You guys are the best on line friends one could have!
